Mommy, why is the floor wet?

Quick update on potty training Sean and Ben … In one word: STUBBORN!!!!!!! I say this because they have both proven that they can do it. They know what to do, they know how to do it, they know how to talk about it, they know what the potty is for, they know what diapers are for (and no longer for), they know that they’ll get M&Ms after they wee-wee or poo-poo on their potties, they decided that the M&Ms just aren’t worth the time and effort to stop playing with their trucks and airplanes, they know that Mommy is trying to be patient, and they know that they are making Mommy a little more nutty each time she has to clean up the floor when they refuse to stay ON the potty for more than 30 seconds …

(Me:) “Ben, do you have to go wee-wee?” … (Ben:) “Nooooo.” … (two minutes later) … (Ben:) “Mommy, my pull-up WET!”

(Sean:) “Mommy, I need go poo-poo!!” … (Mommy:) “Good boy, Sean! Let’s go sit on the potty!” … (Me, again:) “No, Sean, you didn’t NEED go poo-poo, you already WENT poo-poo!”

((SIGH)) So, this is where we are at the moment.

variety of ages, variety of stuff

FURTHER TOPICS (yes, please!!):

(families) Mom going back to work after baby(ies)

    Fran, this sounds like it could be my house. My girls who are 2 know where the potty is…know how to use the potty and instead go in their panties on the floor or better yet use it for painting….what is going on 🙂
